Download SNES4iOS Emulator:
SNES4iOS can’t be downloaded from the iOS app store, but it is pretty simple to install. All you need to do is install a third-party app installer called Ignition App; not only do you get SNES4iOS emulator, but you also get a huge choice of other emulators and apps.
Here’s how to get it:
- Install Ignition app directly onto your iPhone or iPad ( or alternatively the TweakBox app )
- Tap the icon to open the installer
- Search for SNES4iOS emulator app
- Tap the app and tap Install
- When the SNES4iOS icon is on your home page, the emulator is yours to use.
As easy as that
But there’s a problem
Fix Untrusted Developer Error:
When you try using the Ignition app or SNES4iOS emulator for the first time, you are likely to see an Untrusted Developer error. This is because the apps are unofficial and not on Apple’s list of trusted developers. Frustrating though this may be, you can fix this very easily:
- Open your iOS settings apps
- Go into General > Profiles & Device Management
- Find the relevant app profile
- Tap it and tap on Trust
- Try the app again, and you should find it works now
We’re not done yet
Stop SNES4iOS Crashing:
Another problem with unofficial apps is that Apple will do its best to stop you from using them, and one of the ways they do this is to revoke the app certificate. You will find that, within a few days of installing the SNES4iOS or Ignition app, that it will crash and stop working. You could install it again, but you would have to do this every few days. What you should do is install a recommended VPN alongside the app; your app usage is hidden, and Apple cannot revoke the app certificates.
And we’re done
Game emulators have always been popular downloads from Cydia, simply because they were the only way to play game console games on our iOS devices. Now we don’t need Cydia, and that means anyone with an iPhone or an iPad can download SNES4iOS and play Nintendo games.
